Massif du Sancy

Head for the highest summits in Auvergne this winter! The Massif du Sancy and nearby resorts are ready to welcome you for a unique skiing experience on volcanic slopes.


The Massif du Sancy, in the Puy de Dôme department, takes its name from the highest volcano in France: Le Puy du Sancy, at an altitude of 1,886 metres. This spectacular setting is ideal for winter sports as soon as the first snow begins to fall. The trump card at the Sancy ski resorts is their diversity: downhill and cross-country skiing are on offer of course, but also dog sledding, luge and snowshoeing.
